on “What Business Tools are You Using?”
Business today is not what it was years ago in any shape, fashion or form. Today we not only have cell phones, but apps; we have faxes and e-mails; internet advertising, social media and instant communication like never before and I believe it is only the beginning. How do these things change how we do business? Are you taking advantage of what is available to you and your business? Are you being secure in how you send out information and store information? Are you using any of the following tools: Linkedin, Facebook, Twitter, iContact, ToolBox, QuickBooks, apps on your cell phone, Carbonite or any “cloud storage”?
Karen Bershad, the Small Business Advisor, will be touching on all these areas a the next Small Business Group Meeting on Thursday, September 8th at 3:30 PM at the 5 Seasons Brewing at 5600 Roswell Rd, Sandy Springs, GA (map). The Small Business Group is a educational subgroup designed to help real estate entrepreneurs and other small business owners run their business more efficiently, profitably and this month, more safely!
on “Adding Value in the Current Market”
Gordon Catts will be the guest host and guest speaker at this month’s Atlanta REIA South Meeting. Gordon will be discussing techniques for adding value to property in a static to falling market.
